Storyline

Coming-of-age. A small-town young man realizes why he's such a misfit - he's gay! Adolescence is proving a pain for the always-thinking Dorian. He's an outcast and the butt of classmates' fag jokes at high school. He's different and understands why when he reaches the conclusion that he's a "stereotypical gay." He soon announces this discovery to his homophobic, Nixon-loving dad. As Dad throws him out of the house, Dorian's off to NYU to encounter a new world of coffee houses, sophisticates and handsome men. Written by Anonymous

an adorable coming-out story
20 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

I was desperately looking for a movie to rent one day. Somehow I stumbled across Dorian Blues. On the cover, it said it would be a favorite of the Napoleon Dynamite crowd. That made me think that the movie was going to be a little ridiculous. To my surprise it was a very good movie. I liked it so much that I had to watch it over and over again. I thought it was a very, very funny movie. All my friends loved it. Even the guys loved it. That is definitely saying a lot! Michael McMillian was the perfect choice for that part. Steve Fletcher was great as the father. His character was so mean that it was hilarious. I would recommend that all comedy fans watch this movie at least once. Hopefully you'll love it too.
